Sequins for Day


My co-blogger and daughter Kate and I were having a fun girl's day out yesterday shopping. At Neiman Marcus, I of course headed straight for the fall collection of my favorite designer Phillip Lim. He is unquestionably my go to designer. Yesterday I wore Phillip Lim during the day, and changed into another one of his dresses for an evening out. I love the gold and sequins he is showing in his fall collection and was even more delighted when Kate, a fashion stylist, told me that this is a big look for DAY. Granted, this is not a look for a law firm, but for those in more fashion forward fields like fashion, interior design, or the arts, why not? I have a stunning vintage gold sequined coat I would love to pair with flannels and cashmere for day. You will be seeing sequined separates all over the stores. What an exciting way to jazz up your fall wardrobe.

On yesterday's Zoe Report, she suggests sequin-covered leggings. Seriously? Maybe only for HER skinny bones legs!

Lovely! The only piece that I have that is sequined is a silk, soft pink dress -- the cut is very simple and timeless -- now I'm picturing it with all kinds of things for Fall. Lovely idea!

Alison-Teen Vogue showed these-check out my post called Little Ladies and Teen Vogue. Definitely not a flattering look.

Sarah-I love sequins, but normally the way people style them is so disco and tacky. This is an elegant approach.

I just picked up an awesome black sequined racerback tank for fall...it looks great on its own, but I love it when a suit jacket and slacks.
